In the smartphone of 2018 is used single-chip system A12, manufactured according to the norms of 7 nm by TSMC company. This year, contract manufacturer of semiconductor products will begin production of chips according to the norms of 7 nm, but with the use of lithography in the hard ultraviolet range (EUV).

As we already reported, the first single-chip system fabricated using the EUV can become Huawei Kirin 985. According to the source, according to this technology , which will provide a small, but increasing the density of the layout (20%) and energy reductions (6-12%), will be issued a SoC Apple A13. More progress is expected in 2020. Then should begin the release of the A14 SoC for smartphones iPhone standards 5 nm.

The transition to the provisions of 5 nm will provide a performance increase compared to A13 14.7-17.1%; and the density of the layout of 1.8-1.86 times. Allegedly, Apple has already finalized the A14 and prepares for the transfer of SoC into production for the manufacture of test samples.

It took 652 days from the date of the announcement of the iMac desktop computers of the current generation in June 2017, before Apple decided to update them. No changes in part appearance or, for example, the characteristics of the screen, no. What to say about processors and graphics cards.

Компьютеры Apple iMac обновлены впервые за почти два года производства: они получили новые CPU Intel и 3D-карты AMD Radeon Pro Vega

The base model with a screen diagonal of 21.5 inches now could be equipped with six-core CPU Intel Core i5 frequency of 3.0-to 4.1 GHz, while the predecessor offered a maximum of a Quad core CPU. The same six-core Core i5 is now part of the basic equipment of the older model with a screen diagonal of 27 inches, and for a fee offers OCTA-core Core i9 with a frequency of 3.6-5.0 GHz. “Intermediate” version of the 27-inch iMac equipped with Intel Core i5 frequency of 3.1 and 4.3 and 3.7-4.6 GHz.

Now in the maximum configuration the youngest iMac installs the AMD Radeon Pro Vega 20 c 4 GB of memory HBM2, starsiege — AMD Radeon Vega Pro 48 with 8 GB of memory HBM2.

The volume of DDR4 RAM has not changed (the maximum for a younger model — 32GB, high — 64GB), but slightly increased the frequency of the modules is up to 2666 MHz. The updated iMac is already available for order in the United States. The cost of the Junior model starts at $1300, the eldest, naturally, more expensive — from $1800.

Qualcomm last Friday won a major legal victory over Apple. A jury in Federal court in San Diego ruled that Apple violated three of Qualcomm’s patent and must pay for the violation of about 31 million dollars.

The lawsuit was filed last year. In it, the company Qualcomm has accused Apple of violating patents related to the technology to increase the Autonomous operation of the smartphone.

По мнению суда, Apple нарушила три патента Qualcomm

A fine in the amount of $ 31 million — a very modest requirement Apple, the second-largest U.S. company after Microsoft, with a market value of $ 866 billion and annual revenue of hundreds of billions of dollars. However, the fine was calculated as a royalty from the sale of each apparatus, that is, the court actually confirmed the justice and the validity of this approach to the definition of payout — meanwhile, it has been criticized by Apple. In the result, Qualcomm receives a lot more than $ 31 million — according to the source, this “new line of attack in a two-year legal battle.”

The jury’s decision came in very handy, because in April will begin consideration of the key claim in this opposition, filed by Apple in early 2017. With it Apple is expected to eliminate what she calls an “illegal business model Qualcomm”. Translated into ordinary language we are talking about licensing patents and selling chipsets to manufacturers of smartphones. Licensing of patents offered by Qualcomm, provides for a fee from the selling price of each device sold, which according to Apple is unfair and illegal.

We note that the jury assessed three patents to Qualcomm in the company’s portfolio 1.41 dollar in the price of one smartphone. According to a representative of Qualcomm, it confirms the validity of the accepted practices of licensing, and three patents deemed infringed in this case represent only a small part of the Qualcomm portfolio, consisting of tens of thousands of patents.

The decision, issued Friday, may come into force in April.
